Availability: OUT OF STOCK

Tori Amos' much anticipated 1994 sophomore album Under The Pink features the singles "Cornflake Girl", "God" and "Past The Mission". Under the Pink is an expertly orchestrated conflagration of wildly surreal note combinations accompanied by elegant piano and Tori's ever-yearning voice. Tori Amos was able to appeal to a mass audience without being shoehorned into the incipient "adult album alternative" format that sprang to life in the mid-1990s, Amos combines some of her strongest melodies and lyrics with especially haunting and powerful arrangements to create an artistic success that stands on its own two feet. 

As one of the most successful and influential artists of her generation, Tori Amos is as much a force to be reckoned with today as when she released her first solo album Little Earthquakes over 2 decades ago. Eschewing the trends of the time, the prodigious chanteuse touched millions deeply with her arresting melodies, riveting stage presence and personal and honest lyrics.

"Tori Amos's second solo release proves that she's certainly more than a one-shot phenomenom. State-of-the-art production values coupled with material and arrangements that reveal deeper layers of beauty and meaning on repeated listenings make this release just the sort of thing you need when stranded on a desert isle, or taking off on the extensive jaunt into the third-world wilderness. My favorites on this spinning, movable feast are "Pretty Good Year," "The Waitress," and "Past the Mission." The LP, with its grainless liquid midrange and three-dimensional, stand-on-your-end pyrotechnics, makes a powerful argument for the sonic superiority of vinyl." — Stereophile, February 1995.

Heavyweight vinyl produced by Atlantic Records in 2015. Half-speed mastered at Abbey Road Studios.
